The precise nature of medical applications often combined with a requirement for non-magnetic, corrosion resistant and lubrication free bearings makes hybrid and ceramic bearing ideal.
Many of Europe's largest cities rely on their rail networks to provide fast and efficient transportation for a large proportion of their population and are, by many, viewed as a major growth industry in the next decade.
The growth in renewable energy sources has been vast as all the main energy providers search for a viable alternative to the burning of fossil fuels.
For many years Carter has been developing and supply new ideas for a large number of customers within the Oil and Gas industry.
The semiconductor industry is renowned for the use of exotic materials and chemical processes that they need to bring us all the convenience of the modern computer chip.
The nuclear industry draws on the needs of a large variety of specialist applications.
A number of the traditional bearing greases and materials are incompatible with the chemicals used or cleanliness required in the pharmaceutical industry and with regular clean downs with aggressive cleaning agents traditional bearings will not last long.
From flap actuators to instrumentation, from fuel valves to door latches all aerospace bearings come with the stringent quality assurances.
We have many years experience dealing with cryogenics industry, not only because carter employees have extended knowledge of the cryogenics industry but being situated in an area that has more companies based around cryogenics than any other area in Europe.
The gas turbine industry has been one that Carter has spent a long time working with in great detail and as such has developed a large knowledge base and understanding of the industry and its bearing demands.
The high temperatures that are found in the steel industry mean that standard bearings are unsuitable as the temperature cause metals to expand, polymers to weaken and greases to melt.
A great number of defence companies have a large proportion of their business situated within the UK and companies up and down the country depend on their continual investment.
The micron positioning of lens is what allows us to watch movies on the big screen or see into microscopic cells. Smooth motion is critical to being able to see things clearly in everything from cameras to microscopes.
Around 75‰ of motorsport research and development takes place in the UK and situated in the so-called motorsport valley Carter bearings are well placed to serve the motorsport industry.
Carter bearings have specially designed and specified bearings that work superbly in a whole host of high vacuum applications. Using vacuum compatible greases or various dry film lubricants, carter bearings are able to still work at the even the extreme vacuum pressures.
